New Haiti Images from NGC Global Hawk

The RQ-4 Global Hawk, Northrop Grumman Corporation’s (NYSE:NOC) unmanned reconnaissance aircraft system, has returned new images from its watch over Haiti.

To date, the Global Hawk has flown six missions, approximately 130 hours, and provided more than 3, 600 images of Port-au-Prince and areas damaged by the massive earthquake and ensuing aftershocks that rocked the Caribbean nation earlier this year.

“Thanks to Global Hawk’s highly advanced sensors, which are capable of taking hundreds of images in a single mission, we’ve provided disaster assessments for various agencies to make real-time decisions, ” said Gen. Bob Otto, commander of the 9th Reconnaissance Wing, Beale Air Force Base, Calif. “The ability to fly 24-hour duration sorties meant the Global Hawk could support hundreds of ad-hoc requests while staying well clear of the relief workers and neighboring airports. Truly, Global Hawk’s capabilities have proven invaluable to the worldwide humanitarian efforts in Haiti.”
